Missing teeth? Gaps be gone!

Whether you’re missing one or a few teeth, those gaps in your smile can leave big gaps in your confidence. Smiling for a photo? Eating your favourite foods? Speaking to a friend? These simple things can feel near impossible when you’re missing teeth.

But there’s no need to miss out any longer. With our durable, natural-looking dental implants, you can replace lost, loose or broken teeth and get back to living with a confident, gap-free smile.

Step-by-step to fill in the gaps with dental implants

Step 1

See us for your consultation where we assess your teeth, gums and jaw, discuss your treatment options and present your tailored treatment plan with all costs outlined.

Step 2

Thanks to our sedation options, you can drift off carefree while we surgically insert your dental implants. We may also fit a temporary dental crown to wear during your healing period.

Step 3

After your jaw is completely healed (around 3 to 6 months), we’ll attach your permanent dental implant tooth — giving you a happy, gap-free smile for good!

Your dental implants questions, answered

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a fantastic tooth replacement option for people wanting to replace one or a few missing teeth. They can also be used as a proactive treatment option for those who are about to lose a tooth or teeth from decay or gum disease. And the best part? They are the closest replacement possible to natural teeth, designed to look, feel and function just like the real thing.

Treatment can involve either a single dental implant with a dental crown to replace one missing tooth or multiple dental implants to replace several teeth. If you’re missing multiple teeth in a row, an implant-supported dental bridge (secured by two or more dental implants) may be used.

During the dental implants procedure, a titanium implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to act as an artificial tooth root. Over time, the dental implant will fuse with the jaw bone, providing added strength and stability. An implant tooth (also known as a dental crown) is attached to the top of the dental implant, filling in the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth.

How much do dental implants cost?

At Illumident, the cost of dental implants starts from $6,975 for a single implant.

When it comes to dental implants and prices, you may have noticed a fair bit of variation with some clinics offering cheaper dental implant quotes than others. This is because there are several factors that influence dental implant cost, including:

  • The complexity of your case and whether you require additional procedures (such as tooth removal or bone grafting)
  • Whether you need a single dental implant or multiple dental implants
  • The quality of the materials used in your implant, dental crown or dental bridge
  • The expertise of your dental implant dentist
  • The type of sedation used during your dental implant surgery

Want to know your exact dental implant cost? Come in for your consultation, where you’ll receive a personalised treatment plan with all fees clearly outlined.

We know dental implants cost can be daunting. That’s why we offer a range of flexible finance options so you can pay for your treatment in a way that’s comfortable for you (and your wallet).

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care, good dental hygiene and regular professional maintenance, your titanium dental implants should last a lifetime. But keep in mind that the dental crown or dental bridge placed on top of your implants may need to be replaced after a number of years (between 5 to 20 years, depending on care and maintenance).

Are dental implants painful?

Thanks to our sedation options (including oral sedation and IV sedation), you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your dental implant surgery. Sedation puts you into a sleep-like state while remaining conscious — this means you’ll be awake, but you’ll barely feel or remember a thing during your dental implants procedure.

After implant surgery, you may experience mild discomfort and pain for 2 to 3 days. But this can be easily managed with OTC pain relief medication and rest.

How long is the dental implant recovery period?

Typically, it takes between 3 to 6 months for your jaw and gums to heal after implant surgery and for the titanium implant to fuse with your jaw bone. During this time, you will wear a temporary implant tooth or bridge and can return to your usual routine. Once your jaw is completely healed, we will place your permanent implant tooth or bridge.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

The best way to find out whether you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants is to see us for a consultation. During this appointment, we will do a comprehensive examination of your mouth, take x-rays and scans to assess your jaw and gums and discuss your treatment options.

The good news? Most people are good candidates for dental implants. But there are a few key factors that may impact your eligibility for implant treatment, such as:

  • Jaw bone loss: If you’ve been missing teeth for a while or wearing dentures, you may have some bone loss in your jaw. If this occurs, you may not have adequate bone density to support a dental implant and may require bone grafting. The extent of your jaw bone loss will determine your suitability for dental implants.
  • Age: We recommend that patients under the age of 18 wait until their jaw bone is fully formed before receiving dental implant treatment.
  • Medical history: Certain medical conditions may impact your body’s ability to heal, increasing the risk of implant failure. This is why it’s important for us to know your complete medical history, including any medical conditions you have or medications you are taking.
  • Smoking: There is a higher risk of implant failure for smokers. We recommend that you quit smoking if you are considering dental implants.
